Segal Theatre for “Queer Circuits in Archival Times: Experimentation and Critique of Networked Data” conference withSandy Stone as Keynote.

For full conference schedule and more information visit queercircuits.com.

For this conference we mobilize the insights of queer theory and queer sociality to critically reimagine the growing archives of the everyday. How can we transform digital media through queer thought and politics? As proprietary digital networks and state databases archive queer lives and bodies for speculative monetization and biopolitical modulation, what are the possibilities of experimental digital practice?
